My political compass

I've just taken this test, and here are my results:
Economic Left/Right: -0.25
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.28

Naturally, I take this mean that I'm a brainwashed fool who takes on the political and social views that are pushed on me by the education programs constantly foisted on individuals within my society

Kiersey personality profile (Harry potter style)

I noticed Sandra put up her profile from this particular source on her blog while browsing planet humbug.

Here are my results:
Pirate Monkey's Harry Potter Personality Quiz
Harry Potter Personality Quiz
by Pirate Monkeys Inc.

This is a kiersey test. Interestingly this shows me as an INTP, while several years ago I tested as INFP. Have I become more comfortable with logic and rules? This would match my DISC profile, which showed my adapted style becoming more rules-oriented. This masks my natural style of ploughing on ahead without so much consultation with past experience.

... or all personality tests could be barely-refined horoscopes. Horoscopes are ultimately successful because they tell you want you want to hear. Do personality tests simply refine their suggestion of what you want to hear based on a few questions?
